Katsuni is tonkatsu (deep fried pork cutlet) lightly simmered in soy sauce and sweet mirin with onion, topped with half cooked egg.
Sukiyaki is a stew that consists of beef, noodles, and vegetables served hot pot style.
The interior of the restaurant has a modern feel and the bathroom is very clean (sorry, don’t have any pictures). The food is good, but the portions are small because it is tapas style. The only thing odd is that they play Spanish music in this otherwise very Japanese restaurant! Perhaps to emphasize the tapas-styleness? No se ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
One of the unique things about this place is their ordering system: you order and pay when you first walk in using one of the three iPads they have set up! You then seat yourselves and somehow they know what your order is (we didn’t have to show the waitress our receipt/number). A con about this system is that to tip with card, the choices for the amount are preset ($2, $4, or $6). To tip using card, there is a separate iPad by the door on your way out. They also have vegan-friendly ramen and sell merchandise such as shirts.
This place has appeared in the press, like LA Weekly, but despite the rave reviews, this place was just okaayyy. (more…)
When I feel like instructions for easy-to-make food (like this open faced sandwich) are unnecessary, I’ll provide just a simple ingredients list like this one! Your sandwich will be ready in no time. (more…)
First of all, I want to thank everyone who has visited my blog so far. Thank you for all your support and for taking the time to read my posts. To be honest, I didn’t expect my blog to receive much attention at all, but the unexpected compliments I have received online and in person have been really heartwarming and motivating. I really appreciate it ❤ For those of you who have started to follow me, the fact that you want to keep up with my blog even though it is in its baby stage and has barely started, is especially encouraging. I’ve been busy with finals the past few days, but I’ll be done with summer school tomorrow so expect a lot more posts soon!

Be prepared for your hands to get a little messy as you eat depending on how runny your yolk is! I liked mine just the way it turned out in the picture hehe. (more…)
